15-inch MacBook Air gets positive reviews

The newly launched 15-inch MacBook Air has garnered positive reviews from technology journalists.

Jason Snell from Six Colors lauded the 15.3-inch MacBook Air, drawing parallels to the 13-inch variant he had previously reviewed. Snell highlighted the larger display, which effectively addressed users’ concerns about limited screen space without burdening them with exorbitant costs.

According to Scott Stein of CNET, the MacBook Air presents exceptional value, particularly when opting for the 512GB storage model. While Nathan Ingraham from Engadget urged potential buyers to consider their options carefully, suggesting that those seeking cutting-edge technology should explore the MacBook Pro or await the next iteration of the Air.

Monica Chin from The Verge conducted benchmark tests and positioned the MacBook Air 15 between the MacBook Air 13 and the MacBook Pro 13 in terms of performance. The larger form factor allowed for improved cooling, resulting in slightly enhanced overall performance. Additionally, Chin noted that the MacBook Air 15 boasts an impressive battery life, averaging 14.5 hours.

Completing the picture, Jake Krol from The Street emphasized the MacBook Air 15’s six-speaker array, which delivers immersive sound quality, enhancing the cinematic experience. Krol underscored the significance of this feature for both work and entertainment purposes, as it provides robust support for Spatial Audio.
